What a breath of fresh air; a bunch of brilliant actors having a great time cramming every action movie cliché in to a smidge under two hours of rip-roaring brain-out entertainment.

The all-star cast of Retired Extremely Dangerous old-school black ops types are back, saving the world again, this time from a magnificently bonkers Anthony Hopkins. John Malkovich shines again as Marvin and Bruce is, well, still Bruce and everybody is just brilliant; it is not possible to single out a single cast member for particular praise.

Penned by the same writing team as the first film, but under a different director (the same chap who brought us the splendidly daft Galaxy Quest), Red 2 dovetails perfectly with its predecessor. The carefully not quite over-the-top humour is unexpectedly subtle at times and manages to avoid being juvenile & shallow; the cast operates as a skilled and craftsman-like whole (you’d expect nothing less from such experienced actors); the pace is relentless and there are some cracking stunts in fancy cars.

RED 2 is massively entertaining, surprisingly witty and superb fun. A perfect case-study in pure entertainment and even better, if that’s possible, than the first movie. Simply brilliant – if your head’s aching from trying to figure out Cloud Atlas then give it a rest and watch this!!

Format: DVD
The film incorporates Wikileaks as the new problem child for Moses Frank (Bruce Willis) and company. An article claims he and Marvin (John Malkovich) were involved in a 1979 operation called "Night Shade." They have become wanted men.

In an expanded role Sarah (Mary-Louise Parker) our meek lady from Kansas has become a thrill seeker and joins the group as they travel the world to find "Night Shade." In addition to Interpol and the Feds looking for our heroes, there is also a hitman (Byung-hun Lee) after them and Victoria (Helen Mirren) is also contracted to kill them...Malkovich proclaims "Friends don't take out a contract on friends." They are allied by KGB agent Katja (Catherine Zeta-Jones) to the displeasure of sweet innocent Sarah who says..."Can't we just kill her?"

The film is filled with Malkovich one liners which we enjoyed in the first movie. The expanded role of Sarah added to the feature. This is perhaps a notch below the first installment, but a worthy action-comedy sequel that will be in my collection when it comes out.

Parental Guide: No sex or nudity. One half spoken f-bomb.

Not anywhere as good as the first film. Bruce Willis is going through the motions as in a lot of his movies at the moment and for people wanted by all international police agencies they are able to flit all over the world with ease. Some good moments and Helen Mirren is very good. A few missed chances with Anthony Hopkins. Watchable but typical of sequels.

Really enjoyed the first film, but this is a bit of a sequel for a sequels case. Not the best storyline / plot / scripting - seen it, and it was OK - enjoyable to watch once, but not bothered if I see it again. So from that point of view not such a good buy.

Did anyone else think that the use of botox or surgery made the faces of some of the cast so immovable that the film was embarrassing to watch? In particular Mary-Louise Parker whose upper lip was as solid as cement throughout.

An action/spy/comedy movie, which is a sequel to Red [DVD]. That was inspired by a graphic novel about retired spies. This movie is more of the same.

It might not work as a jumping on point if you've not seen the first film. But if you're reading this you probably have. So that shouldn't be a problem.

Following on from the end of said first film, Frank [Bruce Willis] and Sarah [Mary Louise Parker] are now a couple. But whilst he wants to keep out of the spy life to keep her safe, she wants the danger and excitement of it.

When old friends return and old secrets come to light, she might just get her wish...

Nearly all of the cast from the first film return. Aside from Ernest Borgnine and Morgan Freeman. For obvious reasons. And Karl Urban. For no apparent reason. Although Brian Cox barely features. It tries do the same as before, that being outrageous action sequences and character comedy, and it doing those again there is enough new and different stuff in here to make it work.

When it comes to the central relationship though Bruce Willis does seem to be a bit bored and going through the motions. But Mary Louise Parker has such great comic timing, and like all the others in the cast is clearly having a lot of fun in making the film, that it works fine.

In striving for a light tone and a 12 certificate it does mean that when some of the violence does get slightly serious and people get hurt it does feel slightly out of tone to the rest of the film. But that's only a minor complaint.

Some may wish to be aware that a small handful of moments are subtitled. Subtitles you can't turn off. But that's no more than a few minutes.
